And I think, they are alive as of now.
I am not against the Catholic church nor any of their bishops, priests or whatsoever, and this blog post is not a hate message, this just purely my opinion, which I think, would never affect the issue. So if ever you are expecting some trash talk about the Catholic church in the Philippines. Goodbye for now.
I don't support RH Bill.
I guess it would be a promotion of immorality especially among the youth. As far as I know, and do correct me if I am wrong, once the RH Bill is approved, they will be giving out free condoms to everyone who will be needing, no, wanting it.I as a teenager, knows exactly what is happening among us. I am living on a rural area, which means i guess, less liberated than those who are on the city. But then, my classmates already have condoms on their wallets so they can use it whenever or wherever they wanted to make out, even though it isn't for free yet, then what more could it be if they can get it for like 24 hours and seven days a week? And how much more would it be for those who are on the upper side? Where partying and drugs have some kinda been normal, oh habits perhaps. It would be a chaos.
But I am against the strategy of the Catholic church on pursuing their aim.
For what I have heard from my father, a priest at Baguio Cathedral said off limit comments about Risa Hontiveros, and even sent out those who were supporting RH Bill, it would be utterly useless according to him.
I think they're going too far. I guess the belief of a person would and should never be an excuse on putting boundaries between him and God. The ex-communicate thing, I think its the worst thing about this issue. Its deranged, banning a person on the church because he's against you? Its really unfair. It is not you whom he is going for, its God. And even He, who's above all of us is ready to forgive him? How much more could you?
Making them feel guilty too, it would never be an appropriate action. Guilt is just as bad as lust or gluttony, it builds distance between you and God, for it makes you feel afraid that somehow, He won't accept or forgive you for you have sinned. That is completely far from what the truth is, He will accept you no matter what happened as long as you're ready to surrender and admit the mistake you have done.
So what could be the best solution for the growing number of population?
For me, it would be self-control. Not condoms, not pills, nor abortion. It is just self-control.
These things happened because people have screwed up the true meaning of sex. Yes, it is a gift of God for both man and woman and would be the prior method of reproducing. But as of now, as far as I can see, its just merely for leisure, which is I find, really disturbing. It is even done by a fourteen year old girl, while it should only be inside of a marriage.
But I know these things are planned, and God knows every inch of what is happening, and His answer would be the best solution. If only we can take time to set aside our own stands and opinions and try to meditate and seek for what He could be saying, everything would fall on their proper places. And this modern Noli Me Tangere would come to an end.
